Wizz Air, the largest low cost airline in Central and Eastern Europe, has announced it is to introduce direct flights between Aberdeen and Warsaw.
It will be the first time the Polish capital has been served as a destination from Aberdeen Airport and Wizz Air will operate a year round, twice-weekly service starting on May 13, 2016.
The airline moved to Aberdeen Airport earlier this year when it launched a service to Gdansk.
Since the inaugural flight took off on June 19, the route has proved extremely popular and Wizz Air’s expansion at Aberdeen means it now offers a total of 122 routes to 20 countries from Poland.
Seats on the new Warsaw route are already on sale and can be booked here.
Carol Benzie, managing director at Aberdeen Airport, said: “Wizz Air is an ambitious and rapidly growing airline and the addition of Warsaw is fantastic news for the airport and the city.
"We are continually working to expand our route network and not only will Wizz Air’s new route strengthen our connectivity with Europe’s major cities, it has huge potential to generate significant in-bound tourism for Aberdeen.”
József Váradi, chief executive of Wizz Air, said: "I’m delighted that our Polish business keeps growing after a year of almost 30% capacity growth in our six Polish bases.
"By adding a sixth aircraft to our Warsaw base we respond to demand and continue investing in offering low fares from Warsaw’s main airport.
"Our move to Aberdeen Airport is a step towards future passenger and route growth.”
